WEF Funds Diverse Books for Weston High School

October 13, 2020

For its first grant of the 2020-2021 school year, WEF was pleased to provide funding for culturally diverse books for Weston High School. These texts will be used to ensure that all English classes have access to at least one culturally diverse text.

In the words of Christine Cincotta, English Curriculum Instructional Leader for Grades 6-12, “our students, in both focus groups and on mid- and end-of-year surveys, have expressed their passion for reading more titles by diverse authors.” She notes that with the WEF grant, “we can guarantee that every single student at WHS will read at least one full-length text that addresses inclusion and representation.”
